About Blackmore vale Dairy

Our Story

BV Dairy was established in 1958 and we have come a long way since our award winning Clotted Cream was sold in the local area. Now run by the third generation of the Highnam family, both the business and the range of specialty products has grown and developed to form one of the most respected and successful independent dairies in the South West of England today.

BV Dairy now occupies a modern, well equipped production facility employing the latest manufacturing technology situated on the edge of North Dorset’s lush and fertile Blackmore Vale with in excess of 160 employees.

Hailing from a farming background originally, BV Dairy understands all aspects of the dairy industry and is proud of its strong relationship with the local farming community.  We understand the importance of restricting food miles, hence, milk is sourced from Red Tractor accredited farms within a 30 mile radius and our dedicated Farm Liaison Team assists with many of the technical aspects of managing the herds of good quality, healthy, happy cows that provide us with the best possible quality milk.  This means that we only work with a base-product that is second to none in respect of freshness and flavour.
